Specificity inherited in the genome Yes Expressed by all cells of a particular type (eg, macrophages) Triggers immediate response Yes Yes Recognizes broad classes of pathogen Yes Interacts with a range of molecular structures of a given type Encoded in multiple gene segments Requires gene rearrangement Clonal distribution Able to discriminate between even closely related molecular structures Fig. 2.10 Comparison of the characteristics of recognition molecules of the innate and adaptive Immune systems. The innate immune system uses receptors that are encoded by complete genes inherited through the germline, whereas the adaptive immune system uses antigen receptors encoded in gene segments that are assembled into complete T-cell and B-cell receptor genes during lymphocyte development, a process that leads to each individual cell expressing a receptor of unique specificity. As a result, receptors of the innate immune system are deployed nonclonally (that is, by all the cells of
